To experience the relief and sanity of a recovery lifestyle is a wonderful thing and it’s available to everyone. The Professional Recovery Network of Oregon is a group of licensed professionals who volunteer their time to make it easier for a nurse to build that life by offering information and access to resources that supports recovery.

The Oregon Attorney Assistance Program (OAAP) is a confidential service funded by the Professional Liability Fund (PLF) for all Oregon lawyers, judges, and law students. The OAAP is based on the philosophy of lawyers helping lawyers. All OAAP attorney counselors are lawyers and professionally trained counselors. The OAAP provides assistance for several personal and professional challenges that can impact professional practice.

The Other Bar of Oregon, Lawyers Helping Lawyers

The Other Bar, Oregon is an anonymous fellowship of recovered lawyers, judges and law students who operate in the form of non-profit corporation to provide confidential assistance to members of the legal community who suffer from alcoholism and/or drug addiction.

These recovery lawyers pass on the support they received while recovering from alcoholism and/or addiction and practicing law and facing the consequences of their addiction conduct including disciplinary proceedings, SLAC monitoring and last chance employment agreements.

Many recovered lawyers have come back from seemingly hopeless situations to continue practicing law and to reserve or regain what is most important to them in their lives.

The Mission of The Other Bar is to perpetuate the unity and fellowship of recovered lawyers, judges and law students and to facilitate the sharing of 12 Step recovery through Lawyers Helping Lawyers Groups.

The Other Bar, Oregon is not affiliates with the Oregon State Bar, the PLF or the Oregon Attorney Assistance Program.
